Alessia, this article doesn't seem to add any new information to the discussion. Did I miss something? The more I think about not giving the early renewal to Miami, the less optimistic I am. I think economics is the deciding factor here. David is one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood and the show is very expensive to produce. I am not sure even the actors would want to come back for a remaining season if it is a short order. They need to be thinking about their careers and not hanging on to a dead series. Also, the producers have had a couple of seasons now to give the show a freshness and have not been able to. Unfortunately, David has made a controversial character in Horatio (i.e., people either love or hate him) and the producers made a decision awhile back that the show wouldn't go on without him. Unlike CSI who has managed to keep the show fresh with new leads.
